#95 – Knit or sew something

in 101 in 1001, Harry, Life

Part of my 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge.

Originally, task #95 was “Knit something”. A few years ago I taught myself how to knit scarves, and have since made several in different styles. They’re great, but there comes a point in a girl’s life where she really doesn’t need another scarf!

My plan was to teach myself to knit something different, but for the last couple of years knitting has kind of dropped off my radar. I still appreciate hand-knitted items, but just lack the will to do it myself. In the spirit of my 101-list philosophy I decided to replace it with something equally challenging.

Last year I sewed this Miss Buttons doll, after coming across a cute little kit in the NGV. I have since bought several other kits and mailed them off around the world, as I think they are adorable!

I didn’t feel right submitting this as my “sew something”, considering that I made her before changing the goal-posts of my task. So instead, I found another project that I’ve always wanted to make – a sock monkey! Here he is, posing with Harry (who may have already tried to stake a claim on him…)

They’re a funny-looking pair, but they make me smile!

We think the monkey’s name might be Diego, but not sure about the doll. Suggestions are gratefully received.
